The Vietnam War veteran and the recipient of the purple heart, Hagel would be the [...]
CIA boss William Casey voiced concerns over Argentina’s confidence in US
Washington admitted they might have inadvertently encouraged Argentina
The Americans admitted they may have inadvertently encouraged the Argentinians to invade the Falkland Islands, it emerged last night.

A federal judge has ordered the FBI to pay a journalist’s legal fees of $470,000 after a years-long legal battle for the release of agency documents.
U.S. District Judge Edward Chen ruled on Oct. 17 that reporter Seth Rosenfeld was entitled to the fees because he had to file two lawsuits starting in 1990 for documents the FBI should have turned over when he filed a request under the [...]

In France where people are sent to jail for “Holocaust denial,” considered by law a religious hate crime, it seems strange then that well timed, raunchy cartoons designed solely to insult and inflame hate against and amongst Muslims worldwide would be defended vigorously by French politicians who claim, according to the Christian Science Monitor, that “freedom of the press should not be infringed.”
With Neo-Conservative warmongers behind a recent [...]

From Eric Peters:
… This map tells the whole story.
Each star represents a U.S. military base. In the middle, in blue, is Iran. Iran has no military bases outside its borders. Just north of Iran is Georgia that has essentially become a U.S./NATO base. Turkey belongs to NATO. Iran has been checkmated. North of Georgia is Russia. Can there be any wonder why Russia is so alarmed about an attack on [...]
No surprise there. Imagine if Iran was doing any of the things highlighted in this string to the US. We’d declare war on them ASAP. Yet the Iranians do not bite. They obviously do not want war because that would be suicide. Their fate is the same as what has happened to Iraq and Libya if they pigeon-hole themselves and allow the US to obtain UN or support for anything [...]

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich said at the Republican presidential debate here Saturday night that they would be willing to go to war to keep Iran from attaining nuclear weapons if all other strategies failed.
Romney said that if “crippling sanctions” and other strategies fail, military action would be on the table because it is “unacceptable” to Iran to become a nuclear power. [...]

Memo to Bernanke: It’s Called Blowback, Baby
The covert manipulation of the domestic economy has set up ideal conditions for massive domestic blowback against the responsible agencies such as the Federal Reserve.
Broadly speaking, “blowback” is the unintended consequence to the civilian population of secret government operations. It is typically used to describe the consequences of overseas covert operations:
